Applying MultiGuard Protect Nematicide

Step 1

  • Calculate the amount of MultiGuard Protect® required for the area under treatment.

Step 2

70 MultiGuard Protect Nematicide watering instructions

  • Dilute product 1:9 with water.
  • Add water to the tank and then add the prescribed amount of MultiGuard Protect® to the tank.
  • MultiGuard Protect® forms a stable emulsion at concentrations of 10% or less, provided the tank mixture is agitated during the application process.
  • Ensure that the mix tank has adequate mechanical and/or bypass agitation to keep the mixture in suspension.

Step 3

71 Controls Nematodes on turf greens and tees

  • Greens and tees must be irrigated to at least 70% field capacity before application of MultiGuard Protect®.
  • Apply at a concentration no greater than 10% in water.
  • Apply in sufficient water to obtain wetting across the treated area to move the MultiGuard Protect® down into the soil to a depth of 6 inches.

Step 4

72 MultiGuard Protect Nematicide Irrigation

  • Within 15 minutes of application, irrigate into the soil to a depth of approximately six (6) inches using overhead sprinkler irrigation.
  • Irrigate with ¼ - ½ inch of water per treated acre depending on soil type.
  • Approximately 6,800 – 13,600 gallons of water per treated acre or 157 – 313 gallons of water per 1000 sq ft is required.
